If there's a DNS name for this bridge, with dynamic IP, no problem...
There are several free DNS services like http://freedns.afraid.org/
Server admin can use a script (called by cron every 30min for example)
to update the server's IP.

But as always, if the censor is able to find the DNS name somewhere,
it's f*ed.....
